This is a complete walkthrough guide for Corto Maltese Secrets of Venice. Scroll down for my video walkthrough and other chapters.


Chapter 1: Porta dei Libri

1. You wake up with a hangover. Talk to the barkeep. He gives you some coffee and something for the headache. Turns out it’s poison! He wants you to find the Emerald for him or he’ll let the poison kill you. Take the compass and use either the profane or insider code. I chose the easier (profane) one. The harder one (insider) requires finding answers online. I may try that mode after.


You can also watch my video walkthrough for Chapter 1 here:

2. Read up on how to use the compass. Look at the side with the clues. It has a star and you need to count the number of triangles.


3. The answer is “10”. Enter it into the answer side and the compass will unlock. Now, head out the door to the book shop.

4. He wants you to find a book he wrote about Marina’s favorite animal. A little reading up in the Gazette reveals “White Fang.” It turns out he’s Jack London! Find the book and another part of the Gazette will now be readable.




5. Talk to the man in the window. He’ll tell you about an opium that’s part of the antidote for the poison. Look at the book by London again and you’ll find a ticket to San Michele!


6. Pick up the opium. Then look at the back of the Gazette at the ingredients list. You now have one of the ingredients for the antidote!




7. Head out the door to the left to get out of there. You’re at a new location. Go right. Tap on this gravestone. Use the code for the compass (I used the first one). Then solve the connect-the-dots puzzles. I didn’t get photos of them all. If you need help with them, watch my video. Get a disc puzzle. Place it on the gravestone and solve it to open and find the Emerald. Pick it up and the human ashes. The barkeep shows up and threatens to kill you!











8. Tap on the pigeons to distract him and get the guy with the boat to get you out of there.

    I’m having trouble with the door unlock code. like with the bomb flies in and the guy is trying to diffuse it and you have to unlock the door with a sequence of numbers. i can’t for the life of me figure out what it wants me to input, the guy’s hint makes no sense to me

      I’ve passed this part but I can’t remember, what are the hints that are given to refresh my memory, then I’ll be able to remember the correct solution.

        Got any idea what this word is at the bottom of my walkthrough? I tried all three letters for 7 and none of them work.

        1. softstar

          appunwrapper, i think it’s hipathia or hypathia or hipathya , i can’t remember well
          worth a try though 🙂

            worth a try though 🙂

            error, it seems it’s hipatia or hypatia or hipatya , there is no “h” after the “t”

            My game glitched up when I started it up again. Can’t access my compass anymore. Can’t do anythint other than look at the Gazette. So gonna have to restart.

    I am on chapter Pandora Groovesnore, at the part to unlock the compass with a 9 letter word, I can’t figure out what the word is, can anyone help with this please?

    It’s ‘SAN ERASMO’ 🙂
    Who has a hint concerning the door? Can’t find the Code….

    1. AppUnwrapper

      Well, the clue is messed up then. 73 should be S and 74 doesn’t exist! Thanks!

    hi guys,
    i’m stucked at the lion enigma, you must find a 9 letter word
    the way to discover it is to go from the green cell to the red cell and collect letters along the way.
    i can’t figure it out 🙁
    thanx in advance for helping me out, i am stuck there since yesterday 🙁
